Murrow

by Joseph Vitale

directed by Jeremy Williams

Joseph Menino stars as Edward R. Murrow, arguably the greatest broadcast journalist in our history. This inspiring and entertaining world premiere starts with Murrow’s dynamic rise from the beginnings of the Columbia Broadcasting System to onsite reports of the 1940’s bombing of London, to the liberation of Buchenwald, to the on-air collapse of Senator Joe McCarthy’s “Red Scare” campaign to expose communists in the Federal Government and elsewhere. More than just a biographical look at an icon and pioneer of American broadcast journalism, Murrow is a powerful and stinging indictment of the contemporary corporate-media complex. Order
